Ear surgery – also known as Otoplasty – can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ears. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury or disease. Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-confidence and self-esteem.
Otoplasty surgery can correct:
- – Prominent ears that overly protrude from the head
- – Underdeveloped or misshapen ears, often referred to as Microtia
- – Overly large ears known as Macrotia
- – Traumatic deformities of the ears
- – Deformities of the ears caused by cancer or infection
- – Dissatisfaction of results with previous ear surgery
Dr. Calloway has over 25 years of experience with cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries of the ears. In children, Otoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia. In adults, the procedure can usually be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation or general anesthesia in our Accredited Outpatient Surgical Facility.
